Novak Djokovic is cleared to take part in the Australian Open next year
According to reports, Novak Djokovic's travel restriction is about to be overturned, and he seems poised to
play in the Australian Open and a Grand Slam match at Melbourne Park in January of the following year.
At the beginning of 2021, the Serbian was prevented from defending his title in Australia due to a protracted dispute regarding his visa and his status as an unvaccinated person.
His automatic three-year entry ban was triggered by his deportation from Australia, but according to the Herald-Sun,
He "will be cleared to return to the Australian Open in January."
The 35-year-travel old's ban will be overturned if he files an appeal after the Australian general election, according to new Immigration Minister Andrew Giles.
He won his 21st Grand Slam championship in July by successfully defending his Wimbledon crown. However, due to US government laws prohibiting
unvaccinated foreign nationals from entering the country, he was unable to compete in the season-ending US Open at Flushing Meadows.
